The goal of Department of Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM) at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev is to lead in applied and theoretical research both in Israel and abroad, to provide top education for students, and to serve the community in the various IEM domains. IEM is an interdisciplinary profession geared to analyze, design and manage complex systems, using multidisciplinary approaches in both research and education. Beyond exploring and teaching IEM applications traditionally used by manufacturing and service organizations, the IEM Department strives to conduct advanced research, as well as to train undergraduate (B.Sc.) and graduate (M.Sc. and Ph.D.) students to use such methods as system analysis, statistics, economics and management, in such diverse areas as high-tech and low-teach, robotics, information systems, business analytics, data science, healthcare services, transportation, communication, ergonomics, and natural resources.
The M.Sc. program is a two year thesis (research) track program.
